2019 Summer Baseball Training Camp in Ankeny!
Improve your baseball skills with Mitch Wylie, Jeff Lanning, Tanner Buenting, Nick Belzer, and several current college players at the Summer Baseball Training Camp. The camp will be offered at the Prairie Ridge Sports Complex in Ankeny starting the week of June 3rd (in case of inclement weather camp will be held indoors at the Game Ready Training Center). Mitch and his staff have over a combined 30+ years of college and pro playing experience and 23 years of coaching experience.

A game will be played at the end of each camp day to reinforce what the players learned that day.
